Work life balance

 
We believe that a good work-life balance contributes to a sense of well-being, which is key for employee engagement. CWT offers a number of programs worldwide aimed at helping our employees achieve this balance.

 

 
"Teamwork and knowledge-sharing are common practice."

Andreas Worgul, Senior Consultant Air Solutions Group EMEA, France

 

Telecommuting Program, North America

Full-time employees with a safe, quiet and suitable place to work at home and a good network connection can work at home, on the road, or in a satellite location. We only ask that they are able to work with minimal supervision, have a strong track record and their manager’s permission.

 

Award-winning Work@Home Program, Netherlands

Carlson Wagonlit Travel Netherlands won the TelewerkJaarprijs 2010 “Telework” award for its Work@Home program.

Employees can work from home from a half day to several days a week.

Several other CWT units in Europe also offer work at home opportunities, including Belgium, Denmark, Germany, Poland, Sweden, Switzerland and the UK and Ireland.

 

Family Week and India Day, India

The Employee Engagement Team at CWT India organized a special set of events during Spring 2012 to help employees manage a healthy work-life balance and take time to appreciate and thank family members who provide support on an ongoing basis

 

Celebrations started on May 28 with CWT India Day, followed by Family Week. The events culminated with Taare Zameen Par – a Gift for Children Program. Games, activities, lunches and tours of the offices were organized throughout the week.

 

"CWT knows how to manage the work/life balance of its employees, while managing the business with their partners. That is the mark of a true leader, managing well both internally and externally."

Company Outing Weekend, Indonesia

In 2012, CWT Indonesia invited its staff from all over the country to an annual company weekend. Staff had the chance to spend face-to-face time with colleagues they normally only keep in touch with by email. Outstanding employees were recognized and celebrated, and there were parlor games and door prizes on offer too.
